Chancellor State College

Chancellor State College is centrally located on the Sunshine Coast, 7 km from the beach and an hour’s drive from Brisbane. The campus is adjacent to Mooloolah River National Park, which attracts curious kangaroos to the school grounds. The College teaches in partnership with the University of the Sunshine Coast (USC), which helps to promote the educational opportunities of the regional district as a whole. With USC, Chancelor State College shares facilities such as a 3,000 seat stadium, Olympic-sized swimming pool (home to the USC Spartans Olympic swimming squad), professional athletics track and football fields.

Chancellor State College has been extremely successful in academic education, sports and the arts for many years. The focus is on mathematics and technology (STEM). Accordingly, there are excellence programs for mathematics & natural sciences, engineering, business & IT, technology and art. Some of the courses even take place in the rooms of the USC.

These successes also include the RoboKings and RoboGems (Gems: Girls in Engineering, Maths & Science), which were founded as part of the school’s STEM programme.

The Instrumental Music Academy at Chancellor State College is the result of excellence in music. Through year 12, students receive group instruction on a full range of individual and orchestral string instruments. If desired, they join one of the many college ensembles. The “core ensembles” provide students with the opportunity to complete the ensemble curriculum while preparing performance programs to be presented at events throughout the school year.

The courses in Marine Science & Aquatic Practices are also very popular with the international guest students. Chancelor State College has its own boats and much of the teaching takes place on and in the water.

There is an attractive range of adventure camps for internationals, for example on Lady Elliot Island, K’gari (Fraser Island), in Kakadu National Park or in Sydney.
